This is what I made for my mom for Mother's Day:
When I was talking to my mom last week she got very excited about different kitchen patterns. I really like the pattern I used, Big Girl Hanging Towel. I had a super sized (4oz) skein of Lily Sugar and Cream in the color Ecru. The pattern called for doing a final single crochet all the way around. I didn't have a enough yarn for that, so I only went along the top part.
I found these really cool wooden buttons at Michaels. I thought they went really well with the natural color of the yarn.
After I finished this yesterday I figured I'd make a couple more for my Grandmas and my OH's mom. I'm about halfway through my second one in a darker natural color. My mom might not get the one pictured, now that I think about it, because I have some cotton yarn that will match her kitchen.
What do you think?
On another note, Super Secret Afghan is almost done, it just needs a border. I have to finish the hanging towels above first though since Mother's Day is in 5 days!!!! Also, I volunteered to do a couple more small projects that are kind of linked to Super Secret Afghan in a way (eventually all will be explained), and they have the same deadline. All of a sudden I went from 2 WIP to a ton!
